Cultured Cocktails with Wildflower Studios

Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, November 30th, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5:00PM -8:00PM happy hour will go to support Wildflower Studios. So enjoy a drink or two, meet the Wildflower Studios team, and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support the group so don't be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for Wildflower Studios.

I am a local Houston Artist, living in the Cypress area, working in Mixed Media, Collage, Paint and Encaustic. Meditation is in the process of my work and the product encourages the viewer to be in the present moment. I explore narratives through symbols and archetypes, like nature, birds, flowers, mandalas. 
Abstracted color and natural forms are overlaid with text, collage material and encaustic wax painting. 

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves the use of heated beeswax to which colored pigments and damar resin are added. I utilize encaustic in my mixed media pieces, both for it's translucent affects and for it's adhesive and archival qualities. 

This approach to working in mixed media lends itself to creating a visceral world made with multiple layers, an approach that imbues the work with meaning.  

When I'm not working in Mixed Media; my other preferred Media is Watercolor. The unpredictability of the watercolor works well with the minds free associations. My watercolor abstractions are like ocean waves dark with psychological depth and ephemeral like the existence of a wave. I long to capture that quiet beauty found in nature, and amplify the spiritual connection it so reflects.
